Add chia seeds to this traditional breakfast for extra added nutrition
“One of the superfoods I eat every day are chia seeds,” says Clara Norfleet, dietician and founder of health and lifestyle Instagram blog, FoodFitnessandFaith. Norfleet says that when she started putting chia seeds in her oatmeal, she started feeling more full.
Chia seeds provide an extra crunch in this twist on the traditional breakfast dish. It can be customized with any berries or spices and is simple to make in the microwave any day of the week.
